2008 Chrysler Pacifica Owner Comments

problem #5

My car will unexpectedly stall out while driving thus creating a serious safety hazard. This has been happening intermittently for the past 8 months. I have had a local Chrysler dealership check and they think it's the PCM or fuel pump as had been reported in other model years. They reset the PCM but this did not repair the problem. Chrysler has recalled other models from 2004 and 2006 for this issue but will not aknowledge responsibility for the 2008 model. The car is currently being used in brussels, belgium as I am working for the department of defense there. I contacted the europe Chrysler customer care but the representative said she had no knowledge of any relevant recalls past or present. I have sent an email to them (copy to NHTSA) again requesting financial coverage for the necessary repairs and I await their response. What are my options now?

I just purchased my 08 Pacifica on 2-10-16. Today as I was driving the electrical system started to malfunction. First it started with the heater not working to the car stalling in the middle of the highway. I have five kids so for me to be stranded on a busy highway with children is very scary. 1 wk ago wheels diagnosed to bent alloys and O2 sensor is jacked up too. Rust is also present im just worried about safety.

My Pacifica stalled and lost power while driving. I was so scared. I have kids and this is very unsafe. I was able to coast to a stop safely but if there was a car in front of me I would have hit it...this is a recurrent issue with this vehicle. I see complaints all the time and I am now added to the list. I'm so worried for anyone who owns this vehicle. This car needs to be recalled because people pay their hard earned money for a safe reliable vehicle... if something happens to anyone Chrysler will have to answer for it...

The contact stated that while driving at various speeds, the esp and traction control sensor lights would suddenly illuminate before the vehicle would shut off. The vehicle was taken to the dealer, who was unable to duplicate the failure. The vehicle was not repaired.

1. there wasn't any events leading up to this failure, no accidents, etc 2. the failure is the motor mounts, engine lifts up when going forward) can cause deadly accident, engine coming out falling or flying out car sound louder than usual when going forward and when starting up. This can cause a deadly accident/serious because the engine can fall or fly out of the car. I have not gotten the car fixed. Just found out what the problem was 2 days ago. Was told to see if there was a recall because motors mount should not be bad after 2 years. Thank you.
